Maryland Libertarian Party 2018 congressional candidates Dave Bishop (4th district) and Jacob Pulcher (5th district) were interviewed on December 13 by the Capital Gazette.
“As a Libertarian, Bishop wants to shrink the role of government, with an emphasis on limiting the federal government’s involvement in certain areas, such as environmental protection or small business oversight”.
“Pulcher believes in weakening the impact government has on citizens’ lives. Pulcher hopes to reduce the country’s defense spending. Defense is an important part of what government does, but it is out of control, he said. He also wants to be more available to constituents and to combat the opioid crisis.”
